Editorial Reviews

In The Adventures Of Albert, The Running Bear, the dancing and juggling skills Albert learned in his circus days earn him a steady diet of junk food from visitors to his zoo home. Not until he escapes and stumbles into a marathon does he realize the need to eat and exercise sensibly. Barbara Isenberg and Susan Wolf's entertaining and informative little book, augmented by the lively illustrations by Dick Gackenbach is accompanied by a wordforword recording ideal for youngsters preschool through grade 4. Highly recommended for school and community library book/audio collections, unobtrusive pageturn signals (the sound of a page being turned) are on one side of the cassette recording. The other side of The Adventures Of Albert, The Running Bear is without these turnpage signals for youngsters who would like to read at their own pace.
